"The Robert M. Strozier Library is FSU's main library. It is located in the historic central area of the campus adjacent to Landis Green and occupies seven floors. Strozier’s collections focus on Humanities, Social Sciences, Business, and Education. The facility has been renovated several times. In 2008, the lower floor reopened as the graduate- and faculty-focused Scholars Commons. In 2010, the main floor was transformed into an undergraduate-focused Learning Commons. The most recent renovation added smart study rooms, an enlarged computer area, new circulation areas, a tutoring center, and the nation's first double-sided Starbucks. [142] Strozier also houses the Special Collections and Archives division and Heritage Protocol. Strozier Library is open 24-hours on weekdays during the fall and spring semesters. The library closes early on Friday and Saturday nights and maintains decreased hours during the summer semester.[143]"

Footnote [143] should be changed to ^ "About the FSU Libraries." Florida State University. 2007. Retrieved September 1, 2012.

This change will correct several facutal errors including the number and organization of floors in the building and the dates of the renovations. The "L" in Landis Green should also be capitalized. I am the marketing and communications coordinator for the FSU Libraries, which could constitute a conflict of interest, but these changes are factual in nature and not controversial.

Spelling Error[edit]

Under the Traditions section, Paragraph 1, line 7, there is a nonexistent word: 'nenewed'. I believe the intent was to use the word 'renewed'.
